Quilters love sewing triangles with Inklingo. Hooray! Now there are even more sizes available in a new shape collection.
Print – Layer – Stitch – Cut
Print the shapes on one fabric with an ordinary Inkjet printer, layer with unprinted fabric, stitch, and cut on the lines. Perfect!
Monkey says there are so many advantages with Inklingo that it is hard to imagine why anyone still uses any other method for triangles, especially HST (half square triangles).
- no math (like adding 7/8 to other numbers), because you only need to know the finished size
- no measuring, so no weird rulers or tools required
- a line to guide the stitching, so accurate triangles are easy, even for beginners
- sew before cutting the bias side, which was one of the big advantages of old-fashioned “triangle papers”
- precision corners, so Inklingo triangles are easier to match with other shapes
- no paper to pick off
- sew fabric, not paper! (although if you prefer sewing paper, you can print Inklingo triangles and save money compared to buying them)
- cut with a rotary cutter or scissors, which is great for quilters with carpal tunnel or arthritis
- compatible with any book or pattern which uses the same shapes
On the weekend, a new shape collection for Half Square Triangles was added.
A quick way to check for sizes is the Inklingo Index of Shapes (under the Support tab on the Inklingo web site).
